Do you celebrate these festivals, and if not, why not?
oPPS, I voted no, but I meant to vote yes.
However, I do not use the term Easter, I refer to the holiday as Ressurection Sunday.
Personally, I don't celebrate either one of them, but it doesn't bother me if someone else wants to.
Same here... :thumbs:
No, at least not in a traditional sense.
Of course, after we finish our sacrifices to the designated pagan god's we like to wrap it up with a trip to church to make sure all of our bases are covered. :laugh:
OK, maybe not. We do celebrate both holidays and we make sure our kids know why we celebrate them and it's not just about a fat guy in a red suit or a rabbit.
Yes, but with caution.
OK, what I am missing here?? Why would Christians "cautiously" celebrate Christmas and Easter?
Instead, shouldn't we ought to celebrate them over the top -- to the nth degree? Wasn't Jesus' first miracle at a wedding party??
Of course, we should never miss the reasons behind the celebrations and always find new ways to emphasize the true meaning of Christmas and Easter. But not celebrate?? Or, celebrate with caution?? Sorry, don't get it.
I do, but not in the traditional sense.
What is the non-traditional manner of celebrating Christmas & Easter?? Just wondering...
If I had lived in Alabama, the "non-traditional" way of celebrating Chrstmas would have been to go to the Blue-Gray Classic, a college 'all-star' game where the "stars" come from teams that aren't playing in bowl games [thus, they might have had pro potential, which is the essence of all-star games, anyway, but were not 'stars']. But that game was discontinued a few years ago. I wish they would bring it back just so there would be a guaranteed game on television for those of us who do nothing else on Christmas.
As for Easter, it's usually a chance to just get church over with early, then kick back.
I don't just observe, I jump in with both feet and rejoice!!
The incarnation and the resurrection make me feel like a 7-year old jumping in a pile of leaves and REVELING in grace.
I agree totally. I just don't get it when others don't want to celebrate Christmas and Easter. If you don't celebrate these two things, what in the world can you celebrate?? It is because of the incarnation & resurrection that I can celebrate anything at all.
